Agenda 111: Presidential Advisor on Health commends contractors at Ave-Dakpa

 Dr Anthony Asare-Nsiah, Presidential Advisor on Health has commended the people of Akatsi North and the contractors working on the government’s Agenda 111 project in the area. 

He said the state of work so far, compared to others in the Volta Region placed Akatsi North contractors in a commendable position. 

Dr Nsiah-Asare gave the commendation at Ave-Dakpa as part of his monitoring tour to all the eight project sites in Volta and those in the Oti Regions. 

“We were here in June last year with the President to inspect the edifice that has been placed here, and we were impressed. I can say today that we are over-impressed. It looks so beautiful.” 

Dr Nsiah-Asare addressing traditional rulers, assembly staff, Heads of Department, and residents who converged at the project site said, they visited about five Zones including Greater Accra, Eastern, Central, Ashanti, Western North, Bono East, Ahafo and parts of Oti.

“Today, we came to Zone Seven which is Volta with some sites in Bono East and Northern Region. So far, we have visited 56 sites, and I will say that so far, so good.” 

He said they embarked on the inspection tour to assess the progress of work, “so, we can tell which project will be ready by the end of the year, the first, second, and third quarters of next year for commissioning.” 

Dr Nsiah-Asare expressed the hope that all the 101 district projects together with the 10 selected regional and specialised hospitals that have started would be commissioned by the President for the people of Ghana to use. 

He maintained that the initiative was real, and all eyes must see what they were doing, “bringing quality health care to your doorsteps because health is wealth.”
